Bijou Aixois

Drink: Bijou Aixois
Type: Alcoholic
From: Aixois Bistro
Price: $10.50
Description: Complex

A lovely little French bistro in the Crestwood shops near Brookside is serving up cocktails that are charming and tasty. Aixois Bistro has a wonderful menu, including french faire, espresso, and cocktails.

The drink: smooth, herbal, tart, bitter.

The addition of chartreuse and bitters to the typical martini base of gin and dry vermouth gives the cocktail a unique complexity and brings out the herbal aspects of the gin. While this drink’s not for everyone, if the ingredients intrigue you, it’s definitely worth checking out. While stiff, it’s complex flavor is rewarding and in my opinion, delicious.
